  1. My 2 yo went poo on the potty the first time we tried this method

    We were so excited when our son went poo on the potty the very first time we tried this very common sense approach to toilet learning. He was shocked and excited himself! Highly recommend! He goes potty every time we have toilet time now - whether #1 or #2.

  2. Everything you need to know to start toilet learning!

    The workshop was packed with pretty much everything I need to know to start the toilet learning process with my child. The step-by-step demonstration videos that Skye showed were especially helpful, and are rare to come by elsewhere. I now feel very confident and motivated to prepare the environment and follow the respectful and no-stress routines that I've learned from the workshop. I highly recommend it!!
